Visit Google Takeout. It’s a service by Google where you can download "all" your data of any Google service. Choose "Google+ Photos". This should contain all your uploaded images.
I did some experimenting, although I didn't actually delete the photos (since I want to keep them). But I was able to select them all. I'm using Chrome on Windows 7. Open "Instant Upload" under your Google+ Photos Hit the End key. Your browser window will scroll down to the bottom of what's currently displayed. Google+ will load up more photos. Hit End ...
I had the same problem as the OP: Google+ had uploaded 800MB of photos on my mobile without prompting me. Here is the solution I've found to delete whole album, which was not available in Google+ interface. Open https://picasaweb.google.com/home, there you'll see the instant upload photo album and the option to delete the whole album.
You can't tag in the auto backup album. When you tag someone you made the entire album visibile to the person tagged so G+ prevent you from trowing your privacy away. Put those photos in an album and then tag your friends ;)
To finish of the thread: According to Al Everett: In this answer you can find a way to select all photos in Instant Upload. Instead of Deleting them you can add them to an album and afterwards download the entire album.
I just discovered a more automated way with desktop Picasa. Open your Picasa From File menu, select Import from Google+ Wait until all your online albums are imported to local drive Go to Tools menu → Batch Upload In the bottom form, change the radio button to Change options, and change size to 2048 In the folder tree to the left, select all folders Click ...
You can but it is tedious.. I did the same thing but, luckily, I only had 1GB of space to claim back from G+ photos. I had them set to standard (<2048x) size on auto-upload but when they introduced full-size auto-uploads, it became the default setting and so a couple of my albums backed up at full size without me knowing. To change the size of the ...
If the pictures have really been assembled into an album by the user (rather than, for example, just aggregated by Google+ for a particular day), then: Go to the person's profile page; Find the album in the Photos section; Click the down arrow in the top-right corner of the album frame; Click "Download" (see image below). This will open a dialog to save ...
You cannot delete all your photos in one action. You have to delete them album by album. Sign in to your Google account Go to Picasa Web Albums You may have to click through if you see "Click here to go back to Picasa Web Albums." appear Click and open an album Select Actions → Delete album Do this for each album you want to delete. This will also ...
You can do this by: Logging in to Google+ Selecting the Photos sections Select Your albums Select the album which your picture is in At the top left of the picture there will be an Edit link Click the Edit link and a popup will appear where you check/amend the visibility.
While the help doesn't explicitly mention this case, the 'Sync to Web' basics page has the following: Once you've enabled the Sync to Web feature, you can sync the following changes from Picasa to Picasa Web Albums: Added or deleted photos So I would assume that if you delete a folder locally it would also get deleted on the web. My ...
A Google+ album can have just one sharing setting at a time. But you can choose and share only selected photos from that album, then the recipient can see only those images, not the whole album - as Google+ creates a new album for those shared photos. The rest stays private. You can also move / copy those selected photos to a new album with wider ...
Proposed by an anonymous user, as a suggested edit to the accepted answer: Setting up Albums and generating the code to embed them in a web site is made unnecessarily complicated by Google. They really should make this more intuitive. Below are detailed instructions for how I learned (the hard way) to do it. CREATE A NEW ALBUM IN GOOGLE+ PHOTOS In ...
Go to https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/myphotos?noredirect=1 The "Embed slideshow" link does still exist there.
Unfortunately it is not possible on personal profiles, for security and privacy reasons. On a business Page the appointed managers can all edit the photos in the Pages' albums. People can comment on the photos but that's all. More about Google+ Photos here.
I am trying a different strategy. Download all my Google+ pics via Google Takeout. This creates a bunch of zip files <=2GB in size. I uncompress them and then look at their size to find the large pictures that were uploaded at full resolution. I then use WinDirStat to visually quickly see which files are taking up space.
Your best chance at this is to download the other person's photos and to re-upload them into your own space. You can then re-generate the story and hope it will pick up the new pictures.
Your automatically backed up photos are private unless you choose to share them. Back up photos & videos automatically
I think Google will not re-upload your photo again. Because those photos already on Google Plus Photo. However Google will upload full resolution photos the moment you changed your settings. There is a little strange while Google+ count your storage limit. Google+ Photos: Only photos over 2048x2048 pixels and videos longer than 15 minutes count toward ...
You can download all them. Delete all and upload them again (compressed to 2Mpx). Unfortunately, the deletion can result in some side effects, about your current shares. I done this in my account, but I deleted just the probable albums, which I suspected was uploaded at full size.
Add a hash tag to the description (e.g., #Favourite). Then, in your Photos, just search for your hashtag and you should get your favorite photos.
Another possibility that comes to mind is to share a folder in Google Drive. Then both of you could turn on the Google+ Photos feature to display each such folder as an album. Then it's just a question of moving/copying your Auto-Backup'd photos to that album (folder). Google+ Help: View photos stored in your Google Drive Open Google+. Place your ...
I heard a rumor about shared photo albums being developed in the future, but can't find where I saw that. Staying in the Googleverse, the only thing I know of that will do something like this is Google+ Events. If you RSVP to an event and turn on the feature when the event comes up, then all the photos you take (until the end of the event) are uploaded to ...
I was able to solve this by using If This Then That (thanks @Cawas) and the email upload feature of Picasaweb. Because Picasaweb albums are shared with Google+ this gives me what I want. Here's what you need: Turn on the email upload feature of Picasaweb Sign in to your account at http://picasaweb.google.com/. Click the gear gear icon icon in the ...
